More than ever before, global companies need a reliable and secure network infrastructure to ensure data is available anywhere in the world at any time. This infrastructure must provide access to distributed resources in the face of a regional disaster or the inaccessibility of a particular facility.
With a modern infrastructure, you can create virtual network resources that efficiently replicate data to ensure uptime and reliability. When applied across all IT assets, virtualization can improve availability and business continuity. Because the failure of any individual resource does not affect overall service levels, new resources can quickly be brought online to compensate.
In addition, the ability to spread energy needs across multiple facilities increases the likelihood that you can reduce energy consumption and cooling costs at any given location.
